I'd much rather use goatskin gloves like these ones (also Wells Lamont) than cowhide for trail work.  ![]( The closed grain of goatskin and lanolin makes them naturally water resistant (not waterproof by any stretch though) and they're tougher and more flexible for a given hide thickness.  Better than deer/buckskin in my books too. Plus they are WAY more Himalayan blackberry (and thistle and...) thorn resistant if you encounter that sort of thing while building.
